PocketFives Rankings: Smeckten, IgorK Enter Top 10


It’s Wednesday, which means the PocketFives Online Poker Rankingshave been recalculated. We had two new entrants into the top 10 this week, Smeckten(pictured) and IgorK, who can now be found at #9 and #10, respectively.

Let’s start with Smeckten, who moved up five spots to #9 in the world. He had a rock solid day on Monday, winning the PokerStars $215 No Limit Hold’em Turbo and Big $162 for $20,000 total. Those were the 77th and 78th wins we’ve tracked for him over the course of his career.

Smeckten is one of the many top-ranked PocketFivers from Sweden and is #1 in the county of Skane Lan. He is one of five members from Sweden in the top nine of the Rankings.

IgorK (pictured below) moved up two spots to #10 on PocketFives, his highest slotting ever. He has been on fire over the last 10 days, winning the PartyPokerHeavyweight and 888 Poker Crocodile on the 16th. The next day, IgorK final tabled the Super Tuesday for $27,000. Last weekend, the Danish player made the final table of the 888 Mega Deep.

Another player from Denmark, Allan sifosis Bakke, moved up 24 spots to #18. This former top-ten player won the PokerStars Sunday Second Chance over the weekend for $38,000 and has a pair of tracked wins since then. Bakke is the second-ranked player in Denmark and owns $4.4 million in online MTT cashes.

After signing up for PocketFives on November 18 and entering his screen names, Sweden’s DeathbyQuads debuted in the Rankings at #26. His largest score came in September after final tabling a WCOOP Second Chance tournament for $49,000. He can be found under the user name Eijseijs on most of the major online poker sites.

Finally this week, we wanted to talk about the real roks, who reentered the top 100 at #90. He plays as smokrokflock on PokerStars and is on the verge of hitting $5 million in career online tournament winnings. He has more earnings on PokerStars – $3.4 million – than most PocketFivers have in total.

Here are the top 10 players in the Rankings this week along with the PLB score for each:
